German crane rental company Härzschel Kranverleih has taken delivery of a new 50 tonne Tadano HK 4.050-1 truck crane mounted on a commercial chassis.
The HK 4.050-1 is mounted on a four axle Scania chassis and can travel on public roads with its maximum 8.5 tonnes of counterweight on board, while still coming in at less than 9.5 tonnes an axle. The crane features a 35.2 metre four section boom, with the option of a 9.3 metre swingaway extension which takes the maximum tip height to almost 48 metres. Härzschel has also equipped its HK 4.050-1 with a load view camera system.
Managing director Sylvia Fredeweß, the daughter of company founder Manfred Härzschel said: “We have four cranes from Lauf and Zweibrücken in our fleet: an ATF 130G-5, an ATF 65G-4, an AC 4.080-1 and now an HK 4.050-1 which replaces an HK 40 as part of our fleet upgrade.”
“This crane will enable us to cover an incredibly large range of jobs, from machine removals, through roofing and general construction work, to lifts in anaerobic digestion plants. Its low axle loads mean that we can use the crane without the need for a permit in our region. Together with its lifting capacity and reach, makes it way more versatile than the vast majority of cranes out there,”
Härzschel was established in 1997 and is based in Cloppenburg south west of Bremen in Northern Germany. The fleet includes truck mounted platforms in addition to truck mounted and All Terrain cranes. Aside from crane rental the company runs a high tech warehouse public storage business.
